Maybe wrong but isint the Arduino just the USB interface between the Powercab and the computer, you would be better off with NCE own interfaces and set up a webserver to use as a wifi portal to say a phone hand set....you seem to be duplicating whats already out there or maybe thats your aim...


Let me better describe what I am doing.

I have a computer that connects to my railroad and has jmri downloaded on it. My goal is not to just add another cab. I am currently in the process of building a mostly full size cab forward steam locomotive cab. I will then have a car on my railroad with a wireless camera in front of a locomotive on my train layout.

The cab I am building will take that video and display it in front of my locomotive cab that I have built as if you were operating a real steam locomotive. It will then take all of the controls: speed,direction,bells,whistles,etc... and send these to imputs on the Arduino. The Arduino will then take these imputs and send them to my nce dcc system just like my regular handheld cab.

That is my goal to be able to operate the Arduino like a regular nce cab, but I will be able to program buttons and switches to my desire.

I am currently working on a project for my nce dcc system where I need an Arduino to act as a cab. I am capable of programming the Arduino but I don't know how to send the commands from the Arduino to the nce system.

Any help will be much appreciated
